The Mildura South Regional Sporting Precinct will, for the first time, provide a central home for a number of indoor sporting user groups in the district. These groups generate the equivalent of an estimated 200,000 venue visitations each year. The business case for this facility shows it will provide a venue for major events including concerts and regional and national sporting events, making the economic case for this project very strong. It will also accommodate the need for community open space and passive leisure activities in the Mildura South area - one of our region’s main residential growth corridors. The Precinct will also include a café to cater for users of the sporting facilities and local residents.

This initiative is part of the Mildura Future Ready strategy, and is currently being constructed on the corner of Deakin Avenue and Sixteenth Street.

Construction of Stage 1 of the project is expected to be completed by mid-2021. Funding to complete Stage 2 of construction was secured in the Victorian Budget 2021-22.
